Small Kitchen Organizing Ideas



Small house, small kitchen…they pretty much go hand in hand. (Unless you are one of those very lucky few, in which case pour yourself a glass of wine and celebrate that you don’t need this post.) The biggest problem in a small kitchen is that we all need a certain amount of kitchen stuff, and we gotta have a place to put it. In comes small kitchen organizing ideas… the steps to take when sanity seems just one more lost egg beater away. Our featured project (above) is a DIY cutlery holder by Refurbished Ideas. Step by step photos on how to create this!

Use old CD racks from the thrift store to organize all those tupperware lids. (Run through the dishwasher first!)



Use spring tension curtain rods to create dividers for large trays, sheets and other oversized plates and platters.




From Money Saving Queen, this tip will help you corral all those granola bars and gravy mix… use a plastic shoe holder over the pantry door.



Try this a whole kitchen cupboard organization makeover from SAS Interiors. Read her post to find out how she took this before, to this after!



‘Infarrantly Creative’ made this inside cupboard baking center that makes sure everything you need for putting together that birthday cake is right at hand!



From PB& J Stories, this is a great idea to store your canned goods… a magazine holder!



From BHG…cut pegboard to fit your drawer, then install dowels into holes to create custom dish storage.



Use old serving trays as shelf dividers, doubling cupboard space.



Use plywood cut to size to make a lower cupboard into appliance cubbies. You don’t even have to attach the dividers, just have them cut snug so you can squeeze them into place.



Lastly, let ‘This Old House’ show you step by step how to make these pull out storage drawers… This is the ultimate in kitchen organizing!
